English in Aussie saddle

Hello, I am in much need of advice! I just purchased my first horse (so excited) and I am looking to buy a saddle. I have only had English riding lessons and will be continuing with my horse. I am VERY interested in the Austrailian saddle. I love the style and added security. I do not plan on showing, mainly English pleasure and trail riding. Is it possible to continue with the English "style" of riding in as Aussie saddle or is it an entirely different riding style? Thanks!

It is very doable I did it for over 5 months. It has the deepness of a dressage saddle but the extra security of a western saddle. I really liked the fact I was secure no matter what, but personally I found I loved my dressage saddle more :P

Have fun though!! And congratulations on becoming a horse owner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love my Aussie saddle-I've had it for over 25 years.I have no horn & have no problem posting in it, but right now I'm using it on my little gaited mare,so that's not an issue, but she sure does love to jump! & she was pretty frisky yesterday, so there were even some bucks-the little witch!

Riding is riding. Center yourself on the saddle, with equal weight on both seatbones. Straight line from shoulder, hip, to ankle and you can ride in any saddle.

Posting the trot in a western saddle feels not that much different to me than doing it in a dressage saddle.

I had one for years, just sold it last summer. They are comfy. Just make sure you get one that fits you. I had to put english leathers/irons on, the ones that came with it wouldn't "shorten" enough for me, and the fenders were too big, so not as much leg contact as I like. Another lesson learned...get one that fits you...and your horse. :)

Well nothing beats a good dressage saddle ;)

Good idea though, hadn't thought of putting english stirrup leathers on an aussie.. that'd would have been helpful haha.

You are right about the dressage saddle! So comfy! I ride/show HUS in a Crosby. Was at my friend's arena yesterday, played around with about 6 different saddles on my mare, just for the fun of it. Wow, her dressage saddle rocks! Way more comfy than my saddle...fun to try different disciplines. Another friend of mine has a Pessoa, and OMG, it's like a Cadillac. Now I've decided I don't like my Crosby anymore. LOL
